The Inner Life of Krishnamurti: Private Passion and Perennial Wisdom
When Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) was fourteen, early Theosophists proclaimed him the next messianic world leader and introduced him to the ancient perennial wisdom. He was educated in Great Britain and spent his life sharing his insights around the world. Indeed, he did become one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century.
But Krishnamurti (K) was a revolutionary in the deepest sense. For over sixty years he publicly eschewed belief systems and presuppositions of any sort, including the esoteric principles taught by Theosophists.
Aryel Sanat explodes myths at the heart of the controversies surrounding this beloved and complex man. His meticulous research reveals that, contrary to appearances, K's inner life was rich in esoteric happenings. Privately, he never denied the existence of his perennial "Masters"; nor did he deny being a vehicle for the manifestation of the Lord Maitreya, or the Christ. In fact, according to K, these inner realities were present every day of his mature life and intimately related to his work.
